African classic

Excellent decades-old book offering insights into colonial penetration of Africa and how Christianity took hold. Insights also into local cultures, social mores and how communities were organised and structured to maintain a degree of peace and harmony and how traditional and modern worlds collided. An enjoyable and interesting African classic!

Despite being well read, a Nigerian narrator would have added value to the recording.

Not my first choice for narrator

Great story, beautifully told and vividly described.
I'd just have preferred a narrator able to give a more authentic sounding voice to the characters... The audiobook of Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche was a great example of a story about Nigerian people, with tastefully done, real sounding characters. Not this grave sounding American accent for the main man in the story...
